CRPP Press Release : Produce Mr. Gopal Mishra, Mr. Pradeep trade unionists and Ms. Anu, wife of Gopal Mishra before the court!

The Committee for the Release of Political Prisoners (CRPP) would bring before the media the news as per available from civil rights groups Mr. Gopal Mishra, a trade unionist was taken to custody by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police on the 25 April 2010 from Ramnagar, Nathu Colony, East Delhi. They reached his residence along with him at 11 am on 26 April 2010 and waited till evenimg for his wife Ms. Anu to return, according to Mr. Ritesh Kumar the owner of the house in which Mr. Gopal Mishra was staying as a tenant. The house owner was later told by the police that they were taking him to the police station. Later it became clear that along with Mr. Gopal another trade unionist Mr. Pradeep was also taken away by the police. It is also reported that along with another person whose identity is not known was also detained. Even after 24 hours of the detention of all of them they have not been produced in the court. There is no news about the whereabouts of Gopal's wife, Ms. Anu.

We at the CRPP demand the unconditional release of all the trade union activists and Ms. Anu. We are concerned that they may be tortured physically and mentally to extract any form of confession which can later be used against them and for media trial by the police. We demand that they be given access to lawyers and not to violate their right to silence through intimidation and torture. As per the court of law both Mr. Gopal Mishra and Ms. Anu should be immediately produced before the court.

In Solidarity,
